The owners of Charcut, Charbar and Chix Eggshop have added yet another eatery to their roster with the recent launch of Connie & John’s Pizza in the Simmons Building. It’s open Thursday through Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m. for New York- and Detroit-style pizzas. They currently offer pickup only, with delivery options coming soon. You can also choose to pre-order your pizza online for next-day pickup. We’ve heard great things about John’s Pepperoni, a New York-style pie with curly pepperoni, San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella.

The cancellation of the Calgary Stampede isn’t going to stop us from eating delicious fried foods this summer. Meshi Sushi & Ricebowl’s Korean street food menu features several creative corn dog flavours, including potato and mozza. Go big and get the K-Set Corn Dog combo, which comes with four different kinds so you can try them all. You can order online for pickup.

By now you’ve probably seen at least a handful of people making whipped coffee (aka dalgona coffee), a whipped mixture of instant coffee, hot water and sugar poured over milk. You could watch one of the hundreds of Youtube tutorials to make your own,  but we prefer ordering a ready-made version from Qiao Tea. It’s available for pickup or delivery.

Friday, June 5 is National Doughnut Day. Now, that’s something to look forward to. This week is also Ritual Doughnuts’ two-year anniversary. To celebrate, it’s offering a special doughnut that’s a throwback to everyone’s favourite childhood dessert: worms and dirt. It’s a chocolate glazed ring doughnut with Oreo crumbs and gummy worms. You can order it online now for pickup or delivery Thursday through Saturday.

If you don’t plan on becoming an expert baker in isolation, we’re not judging. Instead of making your own garlic bread, you can order Tag Bake Studio’s garlic bread from Vin Room along with its barbecue meats, grocery or wine kits, all available for pickup or delivery.
